We’re working harder than ever to bring mission of the American Heart Association into the Heart of Denver every day. To increase awareness about the dangers of heart disease and stroke and raise critical, lifesaving funds, we’re inviting a group of changemakers to help make lasting impacts on the heart health of the Denver community.
We’re excited to announce that on Oct. 28, we’ll be nominating a new class of dynamic trailblazers to our Leaders for Life campaign. Each year, a select group of passionate individuals will be invited to come together to be part of this group.
This year’s Leaders for Life class will join leaders from across 150 communities around the country that have made a commitment to take a stand and work to give all Americans a chance at healthier lives. The group will by engage their personal networks in a 6-week fundraising campaign that will have a lasting impact on the heart health of the Denver community.
Together, the group will educate their networks about the risk factors and warnings signs of heart disease and stroke, work to raise critical funds that will pioneer new advances in care and treatment of heart disease, all while building a culture of health and wellness in their communities. This special group of individuals will be celebrated for the overall impact they have on our mission and community at this year’s annual Heart of Denver Celebration, where one person will be named the Leader for Life.
Do you know someone that’s up for the challenge? Email Kerry Olson at Kerry.Olson@heart.org to learn how you can nominate the next Leader for Life.
